Summary

Employees, data, and resources are three of the biggest assets in any given organization, and it’s important to ensure that these assets are fully safeguarded. With concepts such as mobility, remote work, and cloud access becoming nearly ubiquitous, the ability of company staff to protect and recover data and/or resources (“resources” being defined as “a company data repository such as a wiki or help desk knowledge base”) spread out across disparate environments is especially vital for continued success.

Even if company information is kept solely in-house, all employees should be familiar with the processes for recovering information if it becomes lost, inaccessible, or compromised. Companies that use cloud services should be made aware of proper guidelines to follow if an agreement with an outside vendor providing access to data is being canceled.
